You can eliminate or conceal boot options on the rEFInd bootloader display by following these steps:

  1. Open a terminal window on your Mac or Linux computer and navigate to the rEFInd folder.
  2. Locate the refind.conf file and open it with a text editor.
  3. Look for the scanfor option in the file.
  4. To eliminate a particular boot option, simply remove the relevant line from the scanfor option. For example, if you want to eliminate the Windows 10 boot option, remove "os-prober" from the scanfor option.
  5. To conceal a boot option, add "dontscandirs" to the scanfor option followed by the path of the directory containing the boot option you want to conceal. For example, to conceal the Linux boot option, add "dontscandirs /boot" to the scanfor option.
  6. Save the changes to the refind.conf file and restart your computer to see the new rEFInd bootloader display.
